After more than 20 years of perfecting the dental implant process and components involved, the placement of dental implants has increased steadily. According to the National Institute of Health, dental implant procedures have increased 6.3 percent over the past two years. Data shows that many of those who had these procedures done were between the ages of 65 and 74. The number of dental implant restoration cases is expected to increase by as much as 23 percent by the year 2026.
There are many options available for patients to replace missing teeth — dentures or bridges are some of the ways that were commonly used to correct this issue. Today, more and more people are choosing dental implants as a way to improve their smiles and their oral health. At Weaver, Reckner and Reinhart Dental Associates, we believe in educating our patients on the benefits of dental implants versus other cosmetic procedures.
Along with improving your smile, dental implants can enhance your speech without the use of dentures. Since your teeth remain in the same position, there is no risk of slipping dentures, and therefore they won’t affect your speech. The dental implants process involves fusing the implant with the jawbone eliminating any discomfort usually found with the use of dentures. You can have the confidence of knowing that you can eat, talk, and smile as normal. Dental implants will look and feel like your natural teeth.
So what is the first step to determine if dental implants are right for you? Schedule an implant consultation with one of our trusted doctors in either our Harleysville or Souderton office. You will be able to learn more about the implant process and determine if you are a candidate for implant restoration.
Many factors contribute to your ability to have an implant placed. Patients need to have sufficient bone tissue for the implant to be successful. At both of our offices in Montgomery and Bucks County, we utilize 3D imaging to individually evaluate each patient. Additionally, patients need to have good oral hygiene and be free from periodontal disease. After the examination and planning visit, the patient can expect the process to take a few months. At Weaver, Reckner and Reinhart Dental Associates, you will receive complete dental care from doctors you can trust in a family-oriented dentist office in Montgomery County and Bucks County.
